Forge World Newsletter #315 - Typhon Heavy Siege Tank and Realm of Battle Cityscape

As always all the important bits below:

Hi there,
            In our second Games Day preview newsletter we’re not only revealing what new models we’re releasing on the day, but what new scenery we’ll have on sale too! We’re also now able to announce that the ever-popular Forge World seminars will be returning to Games Day UK. Read on for more!
Games Day UK Pre-release Kits
Space Marine Typhon Heavy Siege Tank

Named for the ‘Great Beast’ of Ancient Terran myth, this immense siege tank was developed by the Mechanicum alongside the Spartan, with which it shares a basic chassis design.
The Typhon’s primary armament is the massive Dreadhammer cannon, and was created in response to a request from the Primarch Peturabo, master of the Iron Warriors. He demanded a Legiones Astartes war engine that could rival the great batteries of the Imperial Crusade Army in firepower, but manoeuvre and deploy at the speed of a Space Marine force.
The Typhon Heavy Siege Tank is a detailed multi-part resin model, designed by Phil Stutcinskas which will be on sale in limited numbers at Games Day UK. This mighty siege tank makes for an intimidating centrepiece indeed, and rules for fielding it as part of a Space Marine Legion are printed in The Horus Heresy Book I: Betrayal.
Realm of Battle Cityscape Tiles
In a galaxy beset by war, Imperial architecture is by necessity brutal and fortified. Should the Alien, the Traitor or the Heretic attempt to assault an Imperial world, more often than not it is the great cities of humanity that become battlegrounds; open plazas turning into killing grounds while shattered hab-blocks and ruined Administratum complexes become garrisoned redoubts. The humble tools of civilian infrastructure are transformed into key objectives, with generatorum waypoints becoming vital sources of power and sewer networks being pressed into service as guerrilla highways and concealed ambush points.
Forge World scenery designer Blake Spence has been hard at work over the past few months creating four modular Realm of Battle Cityscape tiles. Each is light weight and durable thanks to the hollow resin method we use, and each 2' x 2' (610 mm x 610 mm) tile is a blank canvas which is fully compatible with your plastic Citadel scenery.

The Shattered Plaza, Generatorum Sector, Primus Sector and Concourse Sector will each be on sale in limited numbers for the first time at UK Games Day, in advance of their scheduled release.
the typhon, thats the bugger, i remember converting one of these up for a very old school DA force done in black, thats how long ago it was, almost preheresy in fact. Love the City boards, might have to keep an eye on these for when i start getting some gaming space.
